The Cavern

There is no greater sin
that one can commit,
whether against himself
or another,
than ignorance.
To know not
what you do
or even why
is a genuine hell.
Though the fires of truth
will burn
it is only temporary
and the pain you feel
is nothing more
than your false conceptions
being reduced to ash.
You may begin
to feel pity
or perhaps
compassion
for your fellow man
for he cannot see his suffering
but I will offer you
this small bit
of advice.

You may try to help him
and that is all well
and good
but I am telling you
that no man
is responsible
for anyone’s salvation
but his own.
